Google your name


Recommended Posts

For me, it's a bit irritating. There is a guy who shares my name and has a like named domain. He is an artist, teaches his trade at a university and makes really interesting art. I don't want to be specific, because the art is a bit unusual and I don't want anybody knowing my real name. Anyway, when you google my name you are deluged with pages of stuff about this guy, where you can buy his stuff, his personal site, friends of his, etc, etc. It's almost impossible to find anything about me. Maybe that's good. How about you?

Edit to add - I don't have a very common name, so it makes it all the more irritating.

I got a Wikipedia entry.

Cynthia is a personal name of Greek origin (Κυνθία, Kynthía) meaning "from Mount Cynthus" on Delos island. It can be abbreviated as Cindy.

Cynthia was originally an epithet of the Greek goddess of the moon, Artemis, who was sometimes called "Cynthia" because, according to legend, the goddess was born on Mount Cynthus.

Wow, I feel special. :D
